Tropical Hibiscus' in the midwest aren't cooperating well this year. Sudden changes in moisture and temperature affect the plants growth and appearance. Check the plant for any damage, including the roots. The symptoms you suggest could mean anything from root rot to aphids. The plant might be root bound and may need another pot to grow in, or the roots need "pruning". One question: do the brown leaves feel 'crispy', droopy or normal?
